I don't recall changing anything when I'd make pies with my mom this way. I don't make pies very often for us--DH makes pies and they don't go in the freezer <g>. You probably will have to adjust the baking time when you use the pie plates you've collected. I read somewhere that greasing the pie plate helps prevent sticking...I've never done that, but you could try it with your test pie.

When baking pies, I usually prep and bake immediately.

In some research I've done, it sounds like people have had luck prepping the pie and then freezing it UNBAKED.

Does anyone have any tips, suggestions, ideas?

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding. Pies sound like a great Idea.
You might want to make a couple that are sugar free for the Diabetics to enjoy. Fruit pies work well using splenda.
